Hi there! Today’s post is a product comparison, and it’s about Asda Sleep & Relax Bath Soak and Sainsburys The Collection Sleep Relax Bath Soak. They look and sound pretty much the same – but they’re not!
Let’s start with Asda Sleep & Relax Bath Soak! This one was quite a surprise. I bought it as a refill for the hand soap dispenser in the kitchen when hand soap was sold out at the local shops. But this bath soak is too good to be used as a hand soap because it smells way too good! It’s almost an exact copy of Palmolive’s amazing Aroma Moments So Relaxed bath foam, although the fragrance of the Asda bath soak isn’t as rich or as longlasting as the Palmolive one. However, this bath soak really makes me feel relaxed and sleepy. And priced at 75p for a 500ml bottle, this is a total steal! 🤑
Onto Sainsbury’s The Collection Sleep Relax Bath Soak! From the bottle, this bath soak smells rather sharp and cold (in comparison to Asda’s bath soak). So my immediate reaction was that it could hardly become a favourite. I thought this one might become the next kitchen hand wash refill, but I still wanted to give it a try. And I’m glad I did! Once dissolved in water, this bath soak is actually even nicer than Asda’s. The scent is richer and even more purple! Awesome stuff! This bath soak is available as 500ml for 90p which is super cheap!
Based on my experience, I would recommend both bath soaks! I have a slight preference for Sainsbury’s bath soak. But I will repurchase both of them!

Hi there! If you read my blog, and if you remember this post – you know I’d like to get away from being a beauty and toiletries hoarder. However, I simply can’t resist a bargain when I see one. Now let’s have a look at the new stuff that’s going to be stashed away somewhere at my place…
I found these NSPA shower gels at Home Bargains – for 79p each. These are 500ml and they’re normally £3 at Asda. I think these ones are going to be discontinued. 😦 By the way, all NSPA products are made in the UK.
Home Bargains also had a few nice and cheap body mists. From left to right: Anovia Fragranced Body Mist With Fruit Extracts Sensual Argan & Marula – 150ml, Anovia Fragranced Body Mist With Fruit Extracts Light & Refreshing Passion Fruit & Pineapple – 150ml, Dolly’s Mixtures Peach Melba ‘Just Peachy’ Body Mist – 100ml, NSPA Luscious Fresh Clementine Body Mist – 200ml.
The Dolly’s Mixtures Body Mist was 49p (usually £2 at Asda), the other three body mists were 79p each. I’ve never seen the brand Anovia anywhere before today, so I can’t comment on what their products cost elsewhere, but the NSPA fragrances are usually £3 at Asda. Oh, and all these body mists were made in the UK!
Up next we’ve got Alberto Balsam Stunning Shine shampoo & conditioner. They’re 300ml each and they were £1 each (special offer) at Asda. The next item is NSPA’s Cherry Body Scrub – also from Home Bargains. The 225ml scrub set me back 79p (instead of £3 at Asda). The eyeshadow brush is from Poundworld – of course it was £1.
And here’s the actual beauty stuff – 2 Barry M eyeshadows (£1 for the pack of 2), 2 Sally Hansen nail polishes, 2 Max Factor eyeshadows, 2 Max Factor nail polishes, 2 L’Oréal nail polishes and 1 Rimmel nail polish which is a backup. Some of these products came from Poundland, some from Poundworld. All in all I paid £10 in total for all these eyeshadows and nail polishes.
Yes, I stocked up on stuff I didn’t really need. But everything was so cheap. In fact I only paid £19.02 for everything! I live for bargains, you know. Bargain hunting might actually be ma raison d’être. 🙂 Have you done any shopping recently? Any hauls you’d like to tell me about? Feel free to let me know in the comments. And thanks for reading!
